Victor Osimhen: “I Believed in the Scudetto Before We Started Winning”

Thanks to the stunning performances of Victor Osimhen, Napoli have been able to upkeep their fantastic form across Serie A and the Champions League. The Nigerian has registered 21 goals and 4 assists in 25 appearances for the Partenopei this season, with 19 of those strikes coming exclusively in 20 Serie A encounters.

The 24-year-old has revealed that he believed in winning the Scudetto since the start of the season with a brief anecdote in an exclusive interview with Corriere della Sera.

“I believed in it before we even started winning. And there is an incident that testifies to the moment. It was summer and after quite a hard training session I spoke to Anguissa. I said to him: Frank, do you know that our team is strong and we can really try to win the Scudetto? He was skeptical and I convinced him.”

He also continued how Luciano Spalletti was also positive regarding the striker’s claims.

“Spalletti then approaches and asks us what we are talking about. I tell him, he looks at me and says: if your teammates are convinced, as you are, yes we can try. This is how our beautiful story was born, made up of matches, training sessions, men who don’t spare themselves. Made of leaders.”

Napoli are en route their first Scudetto title in 33 years, having last won it during the days of the legendary Diego Maradona.
